  1. Did you test those bad mice on another computer? If they work fine on another PC, then you might want to try updating the chipset drivers for your (USB controller) motherboard. And you can always install the official drivers for your mouse from the manufacturer.

    have you tried the new mice on another pc or laptop to see if there dead??
    most time it could be older drivers that are still loaded in windows. did you uninstall the older drivers or use safe mode and a drive sweeper??
  3. i tested on other pc and they are damaged permanatly.

  5. already tried that and also formatted the pc..but i m not getting what is damaging my mouse.and the problem is always in the scroll,when i scroll up sometimes it scrolls up and sometimes it scrolls down,irrational fucnctionality of scrolling.
  6. are they the same brand mice or are the more then one brand.

    as you can see there only one pin that should be around 5v. if it a lot higher then there an issue with your mb.
    if there the same mice i would contact the vendor and see if they can swap out one of the dead mice for another modle..could be a defect in the mice.
